The Clemson EFNEP statewide family as every South Carolinian, learned to live a new lifestyle. We acquired new hygiene routines, social distancing routines, etc. Clemson EFNEP canceled all in person classes statewide and stopped teaching in the schools as these, also closed their doors to the public.

Our beloved children, adult learners’ lives, and their safety, became our first priority. Life as we had always known, was changed overnight and the new lifestyle presented us with new challenges, this did not stop the EFNEP team to caring for our consumers and found innovative ways to serve the Spartanburg Co. community.

We came up with methods and systems all new to us to thrive in our passion for serving our consumers Evelyn Santana, the appointed EFNEP Nutrition Educator for Spartanburg Co. steadily worked with our partners throughout the county to do what we do best, teaching nutrition lessons and keeping Spartanburg residents, a little healthier.  As of today, we can say that the EFNEP Nutrition Educator for Spartanburg Co Extension Office has been working hard to teach youth and adults, taking advantage of the extra time parents and children had to spend at their homes.
